  1. Jennifer says:

    beautiful and poignant, and the streaking in the wall behind the flower gives it the look of an oil painting

  2. Evelyn says:

    It looks like it has a story to tell.

  3. Yes a painting came to my mind too. Feels as if there is a sad story behind this.

    Thanks Andy, Jennifer and Evelyn. I think the streaking in the wall was mostly from the very damp climate, which eats into everything. This scene came at the end of some offerings to the ancestors. The votive papers were burnt and the chrysanthemums placed outside. We ate the offered oranges and someone threw a peel on the ashes. The scene seemed to call out for a camera.
